morals, custom and any other capabilities and habits acquired by man as a member of society” (Edward Burnett Tylor 1871). Culture is a system of meaning embedded in symbols. In order to begin to understand what is truly “human” we must first seek to understand beliefs, values and behaviors across cultures. DO NOT COME TO LECTURE OR SECTIONS if you plan to listen to your iPod, text message, play games, watch movies or engage in other behaviors not related to the class! Course Objectives This course provides an introduction to some of the issues studied by socio-cultural anthropologists (ethnographers). Anthropology is a diverse field and different anthropologists use varying theoretical approaches as well as techniques for collecting and analyzing data. This course will present the student with some of the diversity of cultural anthropological studies from the past and the present. The major goals of this class are the following: 1. to introduce students to the basic concepts and data of socio-cultural anthropology as one of the disciplines of social science; 2. to expose students to the richness and variety of human life as it has been lived in the past and the present; 3. to encourage critical and creative thinking to all of our students who are part of the complex, multi-cultural society in which we live; 4. to make students aware of the potential contributions of anthropology to public discourse on matters of social concern and public policy; 5. to make students aware of the ethical dimensions of anthropology and the social sciences. Contacting Me My office hours are on Tuesday from 5:45 – 6:45 p.m or by appointment. My office is located at SSPB 1290. I do not have an available phone number for the office (I share it with other instructors and have no way of getting messages there). Your TA is also an excellent person to talk to if you have a general question about the course. Course Readings
